You’ll Get No Sympathy (Cards) From Me

, , | Friendly | June 12, 2017

(Due to an invisible, chronic pain illness, my mind isn’t as sharp as it used to be. This means things sometimes fall out of my mouth without meaning to, especially if I can’t think of the right word. I’m in a card shop with my friend after the morning school run.)

Me: “Oh, I just remembered, I need to get a card.”

Friend: “What kind?”

Me: “Um… oh d*** it, I had it. It’s not a birthday one…”

Friend: “Anniversary?”

Me: “Ooh, that’s it. A ‘sorry you’re dead’ card.”

Friend: *bursts into laughter* “I think you’ll find they’re called sympathy cards!”
